Reviewed 24 March 2014 via mobile

Very modern, clean themed hotel, quirky touch with the film theme. Secure underground parking in the basement -5 levels at £18 EUR per night connected to the hotel directly via lift but get a small car or you will have trouble! GPS got a bit confused - ours didn't register a one-way street so be careful and look this up on google first. The shower was excellent and the good quality products included hair conditioner!

Only downside is that it is a 25 minute walk from the old town where all the amazing food and action is. But it is a well priced value for money option if you don't mind a stroll. The walk to old town has nothing of interest in between. We stuffed our faces so was grateful for a bit of distance to walk off our food babies in our bellies! We had a fantastic time in SS but will look for a more central location when we return in 6 months time.

Most business hotels are homogeneous and unmemorable. The Astoria provides all that you would normally want, but in stylish surroundings. My room was large, with an enormous bed and nice marble bathroom. Everywhere was spotlessly clean. All the rooms are themed after movie stars and it gives the place quite a trendy feel. I was told it had previously been a cinema. Breakfast was good with nice pastries and breads. There is a cafe next door. About twenty minutes walk to the old town along the edge of the river. There is a gym and underground car park, which is a real plus as parking in the city in the summer is a nightmare. The city is about an hours drive from Bilbao airport. I paid about 120 euros, including breakfast.

Room Tip: Ask for a room looking outwards.

We generally prefer more 'boutique' style intimate hotels, but the Astoria 7 is a special place and a real complement to the Donostia/San Sebastien experience. We've stayed there twice, once last winter and again in February, 2014.
Situated a 20-minute walk from the port, Astoria 7 successfully combines contemporary design and real human comfort. The staff speak english well, and there's underground, secured parking. The Hollywood theme captivates and you find yourself reading all the names of the rooms on the mural in Reception! We stayed in Lauren Bacall. Great sized room well priced.
Breakfasts are buffet-style and excellent.
The walk to center-city takes you by great shops and restaurants. As San Sébastien is an international destination for food, choose carefully! But everywhere we went was excellent and I was grateful to have a digestive walk back to the hotel. I have not seen or experienced the pool or spa, so have refrained from rating them.

We stayed here last weekend. A good hotel, nice rooms, very good staff. Really friendly. We found the 30 min walk to the old town was easy and needed after all the pinxtos. I would stay here again. We didn't use the breakfast service but did use the cafe next door. It's very close to the bus station which is handy. The cinema theme is quirky and does add a

Have stayed here twice now and been happy each time.
The rooms are clean and of a reasonable size. each room has a different cinema related theme.
The staff are all very pleasant and helpful. Breakfast was varied and tasty.
It is very close to the bus station which was a good way to arrive from Bilbao airport.
There is about a 20 minute walk into the harbour and old town where most of the bars and restaurants are. If you don't want to walk there seemed to be a frequent bus service or taxis which the front desk would help with. there was also a very good bar just next to the hotel as you head into town which sold G & Ts in the biggest glasses I've ever seen.

Located a little way from the action (a 7-10 euro cab ride to the sea front) but the staff are excellent and our stay was great. All rooms are movie themed with an old black and white playing in reception. Food is nearby to save the high cost of the hotel food (you will save a lot on breakfast by walking 50 metres out of the hotel). Parking is fine. We had three rooms and they are not big but well appointed with everything you need. A solid choice unless you want to be in town where it is busy.

A good hotel near the bus station. Travelled on business and this was convenient. Spacious rooms, themed by film star! I was in the John Malkovitch room. Good sized bathroom, free wi-fi, extremely clean. Breakfast wasn't vast in terms of offerings but offered sufficient and eggs are prepared fresh on request. Mini gym has 2 running machines, cross trainer, rowing machines, floor mats, exercise balls and free weights. The gym closed just after 9 and didn't open until 9. This is no good for people who want to exercise before work. I would have also liked a bath but the room only ha a shore. Location for a holiday perhaps would be a bit far from the sea. Reception staff friendly and helpful. Good hotel for a business trip. There is a deli close by on the next block.
